WIP Wednesday for 29 August 2018

I am almost done with the Purple Majesty Boyfriend Sweater! Hooray! I have knit the back, the fronts, and the sleeves, and they have been washed and blocked to measurements. https://flic.kr/p/LMrKrp Next up is sewing all the pieces together and then knitting the button band. Oh... and buying the buttons. I managed to forget that… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 29 August 2018

Happy WIP Wednesday! I hope you've been having a good August so far, because it's half-way over. (Yikes.) I've been knitting on my latest worsted-weight GAL square, but before I show you a photo of that, let me show you the blanket progress to date:               https://flic.kr/p/27abgz1 I've decided… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 15 August 2018

WIP Wednesday for 1 August 2018

HOW IS IT AUGUST ALREADY? That's really the important question. Other things, like "what have I been knitting?" aren't nearly as top of mind right now. But, since you asked, I've been knitting mostly on two things: the Purple Majesty Boyfriend Sweater, and the Trekking is the New Black socks. The other day I took… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 1 August 2018

It is Wednesday and there has been knitting! First up, my Boyfriend Sweater. (This, for those who don't know or have forgotten, is made with yarn I spun from Kitty Mine Crafts fiber.)

WIP Wednesday for 22 November 2017

Happy almost US Thanksgiving Day! (Whew, that was a mouthful.) It wasn't until this year that I really realized that I'm jealous of the Canadians' choice in Thanksgiving timing. I would love to have Thanksgiving before Halloween so that I could be listening to Christmas music all November. Oh well. Two more days until I… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 22 November 2017

WIP Weds for 1 November 2017

Happy November! Happy NaNoWriMo! (Anyone here joining me in the novel writing?) We'll see how much knitting compared to writing I get done this month. In the meantime, though, here's some progress on the knitting I did the last week of October. First off, a disclaimer: I did not knit on the Seeta Fingerless Mitts.… Continue reading WIP Weds for 1 November 2017

WIP Wednesday for 25 October 2017

Happy Wednesday! Under a week to Halloween now -- are you ready? Even putting aside Halloween itself, are you ready for Christmas stuff to start creeping in everywhere? (I try to not decorate until after Thanksgiving. That's not the case everywhere, though.) More than that, if you are a knitter: ARE YOUR KNITTED GIFTS READY?… Continue reading WIP Wednesday for 25 October 2017
